I’ve been meaning to share this, but I kept forgetting!
A few weeks ago, when we were at the Orlando airport waiting to board our flight to Los Angeles, I was in the ladies’ room changing Baby C’s diaper.
Now, as all baby boys are apt to do, Baby C reached down and grabbed, well, himself. This happens all the time, so it doesn’t faze me anymore. While I was going through the motions, I said, to him (as I always do), “Please don’t grab your scrotum.”
A lady washing her hands nearby overheard my request and started laughing. “I’m sorry,” she said, “I couldn’t help but overhear you! My son used to do the same thing, but I would just tell him to quit scratching his balls!”
I think my request sounds more dignified, don’t you?
